This is a tracking category for CS1 periodical citations that do not have a periodical parameter.

Information icon.svg Help desk

Cite <template> requires |<param>

These CS1 periodical templates require a periodical parameter. The periodical templates are:

{{cite journal}}
{{cite magazine}}

The error message suggests a periodical parameter that matches the template, but there is no requirement to use the suggested parameter; any one of these periodical parameters may be used:

  • |journal=
  • |magazine=
  • |newspaper=
  • |periodical=
  • |website=
  • |work=

In some cases, an incorrect template has been used (e.g. {{cite journal}} for a web page, book, or standalone document). The appropriate resolution in these cases is to change the incorrect template to {{cite web}}, {{cite book}}, or a different, more appropriate template.

Pages with this error are automatically placed in Category:CS1 errors: missing periodical.[a]
